Press Ganey As­so­ciates tapped for­mer leader Pa­trick Ryan, of the Broad­lane Group, as CEO. Ryan, 53, was chair­man and CEO of the Broad­lane Group when it was ac­quired in 2010 by Medas­sets, Al­pharetta, Ga. He then served as a di­rec­tor and pres­i­dent of spend man­age­ment be­fore leav­ing Medas­sets in May. Ryan re­places at Press Ganey Richard Siegrist Jr. As­so­ciates, a South Bend, Ind.-based health­care per­for­mance-im­prove­ment firm. Siegrist stepped down as CEO in July when he was named to the newly cre­ated po­si­tion of chief in­no­va­tion of­fi­cer.


Jim Fitzger­ald plans to re­tire in May from his po­si­tions as pres­i­dent and CEO of Healthtrust Pur­chas­ing Group and pres­i­dent of Sup­ply Chain So­lu­tions, which are busi­ness units of Par­al­lon Busi­ness So­lu­tions. Par­al­lon—a Franklin, Tenn.-based sub­sidiary launched last year by Nashville-based Hca—said in a news re­lease that it plans to con­duct a na­tional search for Fitzger­ald’s suc­ces­sor. Fitzger­ald has served as HCA’S sup­ply-chain of­fi­cer since 1994 and over­saw the es­tab­lish­ment of Healthtrust Pur­chas­ing Group in 1999, ac­cord­ing to a 2011 news re­lease. His age was not pro­vided.
